canadians. yeah, i think there are problems here in canada, but the problem is, should the immigrant who's driving a cab, but has a degree in dtistry or law or health care, should they be able to use their skills fully. what's really interesting, over in vancouver, which have been atacting immigrants from asia over the past 20 years, when microsoft had to built a new laboratory said we can't get the skilled people in seattle, they put that lab in vancouver, because they could bring people from asia, from india, from eupe, get them the visas and work permit putting them t be work, jobs that should have been or could have been in seattle ended up in vancouver as a result of restrictions on immigrants in the u.s. it's not a good thing for the u.s. economy. >> there is a very emotional discussion going on in america, which may or may no be tied to this sentiment, but the growing sentiment about muslims in america. do you see evidence that that hurts us in any way? >> i think so. where there's prijudice, discrimination or backlash against any group, it chills the climate for immigrants to com
minutes of fame by about 30 minutes. >>> tropical storm earl beat up parts of eastern canada today. the rough waters in this may in new brunswick, docks twisted and boats overturned. in nova scotia, 200,000 people lost power and 70-mile-an-hour winds ripping down power lines. the u.s. east coast sort of dodged a bullet on all this. but the storm is still going to have an impact on the beaches this holiday weekend. from florida to maine, lifeguards are warning folks at the beach to keep out of the water because of the dangerous rip currents. meteorologist jacqui jeras joins us right now to explain this whole thing. i have to think this is a very dangerous situation because when a hurricane is coming, you know it's dangerous. when the sun's shining you think, it's a nice beach. >> you go outside and it's absolutely beautiful. the sun was shining all day long here. you can see tropical storm earl way up there in the canadian maritimes. and young no worries, right? unfortunately, it takes a little while for some of those big waves and that ocean to calm down. you make a big splash in a
with relatively high real interest rates on the bond side that would be countries like brazil and canada and australia, and you look for countries not to own that have relatively low interest rates, and that would be japan and yes, perhaps the united states. >> so we shouldn't then have expectations that we're going to see real growth in the united states or are there policies or things to be done to get growth moving again? do we need more government stimulus, for example? >> well, i think we need continued government stimulus, but in a different form. i mean, up until this point, policies have been ad hoc. the recent policies in terms of cash for clunkers and extended benefits for unemployment, tax cuts is now on the table for small businesses. these are all ad hoc. what needs to be done in our opinion is a coordinated policy, much like is happening in china, and much as what has occurred in the 1930s with fdr. it needs to be directed towards a yes infrastructure, directed towards green energy, but certainly less ad hoc and more structurally-oriented as economists call it. >> bill, you

. the largest quantities come from india, china and canada. while these ingredients are produced in fact reas overseas that are approved by the f.d.a. , they rarely get inspected by federal regulators. allan coukell , a pharmacist and director of the medical safety program at the pew health group says in the last decade, the number of plants in india and china making ingredients for the american market has doubled at a time when f.d.a. has fewer resources to inspect them. >> if you're manufacturing overseas, you might never see an inspector after the initial inspection at the beginning of your manufacturing process. when inspections do go on overseas, they tend to be much short than domestic inspections. they're generally preannounced-- meaning the manufacturer has time to prepare ,-- and if problems are identified, the agency is much less able to go back subsequently and follow up to see whether the problems were adequately corrected. >> reporter: in 2008, 81 people died in the u.s. after being given the blood thinner heparin. ingredients for its manufacture came from china. heparin is made

, canada, japan. is this the result of people taking antibiotics when we don't know need them and then our bodies, when we finally do need them have somehow built up a defense against the drugs meant to help us? >> well, this particular bug has developed such a resistance because of, basically, frivolous use of antibiotics in certain areas of the world. when you, when they have this kind of selective pressure, that means they just have to become more and more resistant in order to survive. so, they will. >> what is your advice to people out there concerned about this or even the next time we're sick and we ask our doctor for a z pack or any other antibiotic. >> i tell you right now, this gene does not necessarily make the bacteria more aggressive or mean or more vicious. the bacteria is the same. it's only when these bacteria that have this gene cause an infection. it basically makes it our ability to treat this infection is a lot more limited than we would like. we can't can treat it. >> we understand those three cases that we talked about, the patients recovered well and we'll keep an ey
